Blooms and Bugs of Serranía de Ronda

One of the joys of walking or driving in the hills and mountains of Andalucia is that you can always come across some wonderful sights, no matter what time of year. Even when you think you are not going to see any wild flowers, due to the vegetation looking like dried straw, you can still find something to make you do a double take and go and have a look. The Serranía de Ronda is just a treasure chest of wild flowers, many endemic to the area and all a delight. Investigating that flash of colour soon leads you to explore not just the array of flowers, but also their pollinators and they mostly come with their very own parasites! The experience soon makes you realise you are standing within a veritable jungle.
